Using PLIP to install Slack 10 - NFS broken

hiya everyone

i want to install my slackware 10 onto my laptop

the laptop does not have a cdrom drive (it broke) so henec i am using a bidirectional parallel cable to connect my laptop and my main box (also slackware 10).

i boot bare.i and run install.1, install.2, and network.dsk disks on the laptop

then on the laptop i carry out these commands:

modprobe plip
modprobe parport_pc
ifconfig plip0 pointopoint up
route add dev plip0
route add default gw dev plip0

and on my main box i run all these commands to set up nfs:

modprobe plip
modprobe parport_pc
ifconfig plip0 pointopoint up
route add dev plip0
mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
echo "/mnt/cdrom" > /etc/exports

i can ping and between the laptop and my main box etc.

trouble is that rpc.nfsd is not loading on the server so i cannot get nfs to run even though 'nfs server support v3' is compiled into the kernel and dmesg mentions 'nfsd' but rpcinfo shows no sign of nfs

any idea of what i can do to get nfs running on the server??
